Making Up Problems to Solve

Being a natural problem solver, I’ve realized that I need problems. Problems to solve, that is.

When everything’s going smoothly, I’ve found myself making up problems, just so that I can have problems to solve.

This isn’t necessarily a good thing. Before I know it, I’ve defined (conjured, manifested, created) problems that don’t really exist or that aren’t important enough to typically bother with.

Then I stress on those problems, working to solve them, simply because it’s my nature. I have a relentless need to constantly strive to improve.

Point: Don’t create problems simply for the sake of solving them.
